LONGMONT — Cornerstone Farm, a local business that offers horse training and riding lessons, has moved to a new location.
The farm can now be found at 8270 N. 87th St. in Longmont, at a facility called Maple Del Nero. Cornerstone Farm, which has been in operation since 1996, operated at its prior location on Nelson Road west of Longmont for more than 13 years. It has been owned by Jennifer Shannon since 2001. Shannon graduated from the Colorado State University Equine Science program.
Cornerstone Farm specializes in hunter/ jumper instruction for riders who are just beginning to those who are advanced. It has competitive teams and will be hosting the Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) Zone 8 Region 1 show on Saturday, Nov. 3.
The new location is easy to access for riders in Boulder County. Maple del Nero sits on just under 30 acres of land and has an indoor and outdoor arena. The barn is more than 6,000 square feet and has 19 stalls. There is room for up to eight horses in paddocks with shelters.
Cornerstone Farm and Maple del Nero are open to visitors from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Drop-in visits are welcome, but a call, email or text ahead is appreciated.
